So she wanted to take some wedding pictures there. We got the "First Look" and a sequence of other shots along with the wedding party. Plus we managed to be brave and get some pictures of the wedding party coming down the middle of the street just outside the bookstore.

Katie & Kyle Watch Hill RI http://craigrogers.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/2/katie-kyle-watch-hill-ri Katie and Kyle chose a great location for their engagement pictures. We went to Avondale Farm and then to Watch Hill, RI. The weather was very brisk since it was in November but we got a sunny day which helped.

Ashton & Matt Wedding Linden Place and the Towers, Narragansett RI http://craigrogers.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/7/ashton-matt I had the pleasure of photographing their engagement session and got some remarkable images. However their wedding images turned out to be amazing too.

We started at the Bristol Inn for getting ready pictures. The entire upstairs sweet was used that had a huge bedroom with great light and mirrors which made for some interesting shots. Next the ceremony was held at St Mary's Church on wood street Bristol which was impressive. After the ceremony we took a number of pictures in front of the church on the massive steps. Then on to Linden Place Museum nearby which had amazing rooms and backdrops with a circular staircase. My wish that the upper part of the staircase could have been used too since it would have have been really impressive shooting up the two flights. We mostly used the interior rooms where we found an antique lounge where some stunning images of Ashton were created. There is a curved window which made for great natural light and framed Ashton and Mat..

Off to the seaside park for some nice family and bridal party shots.

From there we made our way to The Towers in Narragansett. The weather was perfect for the cocktail hour outside which made for lots of nice candids.

After the entrance and first dance the toasts were emotional especially from Ashton's father. I think I caught much of those moments on stills and some video.

All I can say from my perspective was the the Couple was gorgeous, the locations were awesome for pictures.

 

First look with her Dad Some tears started to flow A little nervous before the entrance?

Ashton & Matt http://craigrogers.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/9/ashton-matt Ashton saw some pictures I took at Fenway beach, Weekapaug,  and decided that her and Matt wanted their engagement pictures done their too. We had changing lighting which gave a number of opportunities for a wide variety of images.

They both had a lot of fun, especially frolicking at the waters edge. When the sun went behind the clouds there was some nice rays coming through which made for some stunning backdrops and semi silhouette shots.

Emily and David a real engagement session http://craigrogers.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/7/emily-and-david-a-real-engagement-session David called me and asked if I could capture his proposal at the Watch Hill Light House while is fiancee was unaware. I said certainly and would love to do it. Since I only live 10 minutes away I went a couple times to take some pictures and try and help figure out how we could pull it off.

So after a few conversations we came up with a plan and I think from the following images you will see that it went very well. Emily had no clue what was going on. I have never seen so much real emotion and joy coming from the two of them. I feel privileged to be there to Capture the Moment!

Monique & Jack http://craigrogers.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/12/monique-jack Monique and Jack along with their guests stayed at one of their favorite headings when they come to RI,at the Shelter Harbor Inn, where they decided to have their wedding. Their ceremony was performed under a tree off the back patio which accommodated everyone while guitarist provided back ground music. After the ceremony the bridal party headed to one of their meaningful spots at the Weekapaug beach and Shelter Harbor access for location pictures.

The couple showed lots of affection and looked great and Jack reflected that with his constant smile thought out the day.

Monique's dog stole the show in many of the pictures. 

The food provided by Shelter Harbor Catering was outstanding as usual and the live band completed the nights entertainment. 

Jack's son got up and jammed with the band for a couple of songs playing a mean electric guitar,, very impressive.

Sarah & Matt http://craigrogers.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/10/sarah-matt The day started out at Sarah's parent's home in Westerly where we took some getting ready pictures of the family and her Maids. Just down the street I managed to get a few pictures the Guys, Matt and the Groomsmen.

Next we headed to the Fenway Beach where it was planned for the First Look to take place. I had Matt stand facing the ocean on a board walk waiting for Sarah to come. That turned for some really nice pictures along with others, just the two of them before the rest of the family and bridal party came.

Everyone had a good time as we took pictures on the boardwalk and then on the beach.

From there it was to the venue, Jonathan Edwards Winery in North Stonington for the ceremony and reception.

The outside ceremony setting in the vineyard went off beautifully with a lot of emotion shown by Sarah and Matt.

After the ceremony it was cocktails in the Vineyard's main bar and reception room then it was off to the large tent for the reception.

The setting is very picturesque with the moonlit sky but inside everyone was warm and cozy while enjoying the buffet and dancing.

The following is just a smattering of pictures covering Sarah and Matts special day.

Nicole & Jason http://craigrogers.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/9/nicole-jason You couldn't had a better day for a wedding. Nicole and Jason, their family and friends all had a great time. 

The bride started her day getting ready at her parents home near Weekapaug. As you can see from the photos she looked exquisite along with her brides' maids. The ceremony was held at the Watch Hill Chapel across from the Ocean House. From there the bridal party made a quick trip back to the parent's house to get a few pictures with their family pet, a golden retriever. Then it was on to Jonathan Edwards Winery in Stonington CT for the reception.

The Vineyard has been the go to place for wedding venues for a number of years now and they did not disappoint. They kindly had the netting removed on a section of the vineyard so as not to take away from the setting and for pictures.

Everything was perfection,  from the flowers, the food, the live band and what really stole the show what Nicole's grandfather singing a couple of songs near the end of the night.
